Green Collar Economy

Book Review by Porchlight

Another seemingly awesome read just came to my attention per a client that wanted these books for a meeting this month for her employees. It's called Green Collar Economy and boy does this sound like exactly what this country needs right now. It's by Van Jones and it's basically a wake-up call to our economy and the movers and shakers within its walls. READ FULL DESCRIPTION

--Leonardo DiCaprioA New York Times bestseller, The Green Collar Economy by award-winning human rights activist and environmental leader Van Jones delivers a much-needed economic and environmental solution to today's two most critical problems. With a revised introduction and new afterword by the author--a man who counsels President Barack Obama on environmental policy--The Green Collar Economy and Jones have been highly praised by a multitude of leaders and legislators, including Al Gore, Senator Tom Daschle, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
